I came across NHV Naturals via Instagram. At that time, I wasn’t really looking to add any supplements to Kitty’s health regime but I kept it in mind in case I needed to look into it.
Well, the need came sooner than later when Kitty started to get sick. If you read my previous blog post, you would know that Kitty had some stomach issues and was throwing up frequently. After visiting the vet and learning that there isn’t really anything wrong with her, I did some research and reached out to the lovely people at NHV Naturals to see if they can provide me some tips to help her tummy.
I must say I was very impressed with the time they took to chat with me about Kitty’s condition, her symptoms, etc to try to figure out what is causing her to throw up. After a lot of discussion, I decided to add the Multi Essentials to her diet.
Multi Essentials for Cats is a herbal multi vitamin, digestive and energy booster. According to their website, it helps in the following ways;
- Stimulates metabolism
- Promotes healthy skin and coat
- Aids effective digestion
- Reduces fatigue and increases energy levels
- Helps fill nutritional voids
One of the reasons I picked this product is that last point ‘filling nutritional voids’. I was concerned that Kitty was not retaining any nutrition from her food because she was throwing it up.
Once I got my order in, I was instructed to introduce it slowly. I started with a few drops twice a day. After a few days, I increased it to 0.25ml. Once Kitty got accustomed to it (which took about a week), I began the recommended dosage of 0.5ml twice a day.
I found the dropper bottle easy to use as the dosage amount is already marked on it so there is no guess work.
As a serial label reader, I was happy to learn that the supplements are made with natural ingredients and no artificial flavours or preservatives are used. One bottle would last about a 100 days.
I suppose the biggest test is to see how she responded to it. I started the supplements on the 24th of October 2017. She took to it fairly easily. For an entire month, she didn’t have throw up incidents. I believe this was a combination of her new food, limited treats and the supplements.
I was really happy to with how things were going with her. She was eating well and her skin and coat was looking better than ever (side note: She did have some dry skin which has now cleared up!)
To end this review, I would encourage every cat parent to look into adding Multi Essentials to their cat’s diet. It will provide great support to your cat’s overall health. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure you give the supplements AFTER meals. Kitty had a couple of throw up incidents a few days ago so I am now mixing the supplements with her wet food to help her digest it better.
